Should I use a personal injury lawyer? Is it really necessary?
Insurance companies are billion dollar entities with teams of lawyers protecting their economic interests. You deserve a strong team that will use the law to protect your best interests and the interests of your family.
Can I revisit a previous injury?
While the effects can last a lifetime, you only get one chance to make your claim. That’s why it’s critically important to take your time and get the best advice possible. Insurance companies will often pressure individuals to settle quickly, however if you end up being injured worse than it appeared – and injuries can sometimes take time to surface – you will not be able to re-open your case. Get all the facts, call us first before accepting an insurance settlement.
Is it right to pursue a personal injury claim? Am I driving up insurance rates?
Civil laws have been in place for hundreds of years and they are there to protect you. This is not a legal loophole – The law is on your side. It’s been proven time and again that insurance claims have virtually no effect on insurance rates.
How Long Does It take?
Litigation is unpredictable. Some cases we can resolve in months, other cases can last years. Either way, it’s important to make the decisions that are in your best long-term interest. We can make sure you know all the facts and all your options.
Will my case go to trial?
We have a history of taking cases to trial if necessary, and we’ve done it more often than many firms. Because we’ve demonstrated that we’re willing to go to court to protect our clients, insurance companies now make good offers earlier in the process. As a result of our work, the number of cases that reach trial tends to be low.
